We’re feeling fruity. Here are some tips from commercial gardeners on how to get your fruit to taste sweeter.
-Mix Epsom salt with water at a ratio of about a quarter-cup of Epsom salt per 500 square feet when you irrigate your plants.
-Fertilizer can cause salt buildup in soil, and Epsom salt helps separate fertilizer bound to the soil, making the nutrients more available to the plants.
-Commercial growers say it reduces the total amounts of fertilizers you need, and makes the fertilizers you use more effective.http://www.epsomsaltcouncil.org/garden/
